Medical Treatment Advice from RGG Law
At RGG Law, we have years of experience navigating the intricacies of Social Security disability law. As virtually all of our clients are living on a very restricted budget as they seek disability benefits, many wonder about the expense of medical treatments and if it’s really necessary for their Social Security disability case. In today’s RGG Law blog, the RGG Law disability attorney team seeks to answer this question and provide more valuable information.
Necessary Disability Documentation
Medical documentation of your disability is vitally important to the success of your disability claim. A Social Security disability judge needs proof from a licensed medical professional that shows your issues hinder you from being able to be gainfully employed for at least a year. Although medical treatment can be expensive, your Social Security disability case will not be successful without proof from a doctor. Luckily, there are a number of lower cost medical facilities that can provide the necessary documentation for your claim. Your RGG Law disability lawyer can help you find one of these facilities to get this all-important documentation.
Proof of Seeking Treatment
To qualify for disability benefits, you need more than just proof that you have a debilitating condition. The Social Security Administration also requires proof that you have actively been seeking treatments to relieve the symptoms that occur because of your condition. For example, if you have a back injury that prevents you from working a full-time job, the Social Security Administration requires documentation that you have been attending physical therapy and utilizing other medical methods to try and treat your condition. Without this documentation, there is a very high chance that your case will be denied.
A More Successful Claim
All in all, seeking medical treatment is extremely important to the success of your Social Security disability case. Though there is expense involved, your case will not have much chance of success without the medical evidence to back up your claim. Seeking medical treatment can also help relieve pain and give you a better outlook on your case in general.
